About Dr. Papandria

Dr. Papandria received his MD degree from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, where he also completed his internship in general surgery. He completed the PGY-2 year of his general surgery residency at Johns Hopkins, after which he did a pediatric surgery clinical and research fellowship at that institution. He resumed his residency training in general surgery at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis and then pursued fellowship training in Surgical Critical Care at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and in Minimally Invasive Surgery at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH. During the latter fellowship, he served as a faculty member for Nationwide Children's minimally invasive surgical skills laboratory at several national and international pediatric surgery meetings. He was also appointed clinical assistant professor at Ohio State University College of Medicine. Board certified in general surgery and surgical critical care, Dr. Papandria's primary clinical role at Emory will be as a general surgeon for the Acute and Critical Care Surgery service at Emory University Hospital Midtown.
